Homeschool Hal and Melanie Youngfrom the Beginning
When do you ge
t started and what do you do first? We've had precocious readers and late bloomers, but every one of them has benefited from being homeschooled from the beginning. Learn to relax and introduce your little ones to the joy of learning in a gentle and realistic way that will prepare them to succeed academically.

After this Keynote Session, attend the Free Introduction to Home Education session from 6:35 to 8:00 p.m. and receive free entry for an Exhibit Hall preview from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Attendees may attend either or both of the first two sessions (Keynote, Intro Session) but in order to participate in the third session (Exhibit Hall Preview), attendees must attend part 2, the Free Introduction to Home Education session.
